"It's Now June 4, 1989" - Hong Kong Paralyzed For 3rd Day As Demonstrators Prepare For War

Violent protests continued in Hong Kong for a third day on Wednesday, crippling transport links and clogging roads, and prompting many major companies in the city, including HSBC and BNP Paribas, to instruct employees to stay home from work to avoid the risk of physical harm.

And in anticipation of more violence tomorrow,the Hong Kong Education Bureau has said that all kindergartens, primary schools, secondary schools and special education needs schools will cancel class on Thursday for safety reasons, according to an official statement. Most universities in Hong Kong have suspended classes until next week or converted them to online-only for the rest of the semester. And after the clashes from earlier this week, more than 80 mainland Chinese students have been evacuated for their own safety.

"It’s now 4th June 1989," was scrawled on the windows of fashion store Georgio Armani, a reference to the crackdown by Chinese troops on pro-democracy protesters in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although I abhor communism as a system, I have to feel just the tiniest bit of sympathy for China's President Xi.

Looking at these demonstrations, he has got to be asking himself right now, "if I get more horrifically oppressive with these people, will it actually stop these demonstrations?!?"

And that... is a tough one. My gut is telling me, is that it will not stop these demonstrations, but give the protestors more energy, compassion, and zeal for their cause.

He will be hounded and vilified by the West for dispatching these people "with extreme prejudice", and may well "lose face" with his colleagues both inside the Chinese government, and in other world capitals.

I absolutely would not want to be in his shoes right now.
